Valorant's Ghost Sidearm costs 500 CREDS.
Unlike cheaper Sidearm upgrades, this doesn't leave you with enough money to buy Light Shields in pistol rounds. You do, however, still have 300 CREDS left over to spend on Agent abilities.
Aside from the Shorty at very close ranges, the Ghost is the cheapest gun you can purchase that can one-shot shieldless opponents.
It does 105 damage with shots to the head within 30m, though beyond this distance, its damage drops off to 88, making it impossible to one-shot any full health enemy.
The Ghost's semi-automatic primary fire allows you to shoot incredibly accurate shots while firing at a relatively quick rate. Shooting too fast, however, will hurt its accuracy (though not as significantly as other weapons).
Depending on their Agent choice and team's strategy, many high-level and professional Valorant players opt to buy the Ghost and Agent abilities on pistol rounds. As we discussed above, it's excellent for quickly eliminating opponents in these rounds where they're less likely to have shields.
This Valorant weapon can also be purchased on light buy/near save rounds to give you a fighting chance at the round or to at least take out one enemy with two quick shots.
However, if you can afford the Sheriff while still having enough to full-buy in the next round, we prefer the Sheriff as it can one-shot headshot opponents with full health and Heavy Shields up to 30m.
